According to NDTV, the Vice President said that the political leadership, executive, legislature, judiciary and media performed their responsibilities, but that the media at times went sensational.

“(When) it becomes sensational you lose sense and it becomes nonsense. You really need to focus your attention on what is the message you want to give,” he said.

“I am not giving any lesson to the media friends. They know better than me. But the only thing is they need to be reminded that what is required is a positive attitude. What is required is a change of mindset,” Mr Naidu, who held the information and broadcasting portfolio before becoming the vice president, said.
